"A small controversy has risen, after a report that President Obama would not be attending a traditional Memorial Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. Instead, Obama will spend the holiday with his family in Chicago.

Traditionally, presidents would lay a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Solider. Some conservative groups are angered by the move.

"Obama will however make it back to Washington in time next week to honor Paul McCartney, who has sacrificed so much for the freedoms we enjoy," seethes conservative commenter Michelle Malkin."

Another great move by the President.

President Obama doesn't care about white people.

So even if he is working at least Bush knew that it would be a bad idea to not honor the men and women who are dying because of his orders.

people are going to bitch about the president no matter who he is. kevin's article is case in point.

not that traditions aren't important, but reluctance to accept change on occasion is why everything's stagnating. and why weed's still illegal.

maybe on veteran's day he'll hold a silent vigil as a symbolic apology.
